Match Preview: Brisbane Roar v Sydney FC


Sydney FC take on Brisbane Roar on Monday night at McDonald Jones Stadium (kick off 7:30pm AEST), in their penultimate clash of the 2019/20 Hyundai A-League regular season.

The Sky Blues will be out to improve on their entertaining stalemate against the Reds on Thursday night, while the Roar enter the contest after their own draw against the Phoenix last Wednesday.

The two sides have met twice previously in 2019/20, with Head Coach Steve Corica’s men triumphing 5-1 and 1-0 against the Queenslanders, with Adam Le Fondre bagging a hat-trick in the club’s first encounter this season.

The Roar are sitting in fourth place currently, and will be out to stamp their Finals credentials under new Head Coach Warren Moon.
